Food security exists when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for food to lead active and healthy, according to the Food United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
One of the biggest problems facing humanity is closely related to access to water and food production. Thus, the lack of food causes about 1,000 million people suffer hunger in the world. In addition, this lack of food threatens the stability and peace in many parts of the planet. It is therefore necessary to work with disadvantaged communities in favor of progress. Without enough food, there is no development possible. Proof of this is the drama that is currently living in the Horn of Africa.
